The Rhone/French Alps region
There is something for everyone in the Haute-Savoie Region. As well as the fantastic skiing, climbing, walking, cycling and rafting there are also several great towns and cities within an hour’s drive, Geneva, Annecy, Chamonix and Aosta (Italy). Although famous for the Winter pastimes the region offers so much in the Summer. Excellent sunny weather makes walking and cycling a joy especially when all the wild flowers are blooming.
Following the Winter, the Spring comes and the snow melt and the mountains with its wild flowers and waterfalls, burst into life, lifting the spirit with their beauty. The Autumn also provides opportunity for some fantastic walking with the gorgeous colours of the fall and the high pressure system allowing normally dry weather to remain over the region creating fiercely blue skies. Come and explore this region of the French Alps, you may never want to leave!
The Giffre Valley is one of those special places that creates perfect holidays during any season. Surrounded by a vast protected mountain area and classified as one of the six most beautiful areas in France this area is not to be missed. It simply is a fabulous place to come and visit.
In the Winter we have 265 kms of skiing suitable for all levels from the beginner to the adrenaline junky! The exceptional snow sure cover is due to our proximity to Mont Blanc. Activities aside from skiing are; Dog-sledding, ice skating, 90 km's of cross country (Nordic) skiing and snow shoeing. In the Summer there are many local cultural and music festivals to complement the wide array of outdoor activities.
Activities such as; rock climbing, including the exhilarating Via Ferratta, swimming in the local lake and pool, volley ball, tennis, paragliding, horse-riding, ballooning, hiking, mountain biking, rafting, helicopter rides over Mont Blanc, Golf and canoeing....quite simply too many to list!
